About to purchase maisonette in Chesterfield.

Back In 2000, I bought a leasehold house in Chesterfield. Conveyancing and National Westminster Bank mortgage went though with no issue. A letter has just been received from someone claiming to own the freehold. It included a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1998. The conveyancing practitioner in Chesterfield who previously acted has now retired. Any advice?

The first thing you should do is make enquiries of the Land Registry to be sure that this person is indeed the registered owner of the freehold reversion. There is no need to instruct a Chesterfield conveyancing practitioner to do this as you can do this on the Land Registry website for less than a fiver. You should note that regardless, even if this is the legitimate freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.

I acquired a ground floor flat in Chesterfield, conveyancing was carried out 7 years ago. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Equivalent properties in Chesterfield with a long lease are worth £185,000. The ground rent is £65 yearly. The lease ceases on 21st October 2080

With only 60 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £20,000 and £23,000 as well as costs.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of detailed investigations. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not take any other action based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.

We are seeking to buy a repossessed property in Chesterfield and the vendor would like to complete within a month. Do conveyancing practitioners meet that timeframe? Would it be better to select a high street Chesterfield firm or an online organisation that professes to offer speedy conveyancing?

Appoint the firm that appears most trustworthy. Make sure to select a property lawyer on the panel of solicitors who can act for your lender.
